LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display

An 88-inch OLED panel is the largest OLED display to date. Different technologies such as 4K and HDR resolution are finally becoming mainstream, thanks to the advancements made in the recent past. With that measurement, LG still won't beat the world's biggest display in a TV, but it definitely seats atop in terms of largest OLED panel. Of course, it will take a while before 8K televisions become a standard.

Let's see what LG shows us at CES and then we can have detailed specs and a rough pricing of the 8K display.

8K pushes an eye-watering amount of pixels with a native 7680 x 4320 resolution, and as an 8K monitor owner myself (Dell UP3218K) as well as a 65-inch 4K OLED TV from LG, the mere tease of a massive 88-inch 8K OLED blows my mind. Currently, the 4K resolution TV model is offered by brands like LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic but all these companies use disPlays manufactured by LG Display.

"The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality that are already highly regarded in the UHD TV industry". At CES 2017, Samsung unveiled three QLED TVs - the Q9, Q8 and Q7.




This, if not the size alone, makes one wonder if the new TV is just to showcase the technological might of the company or if it is really meant for a commercial launch anytime soon. So expect nothing less than that for a TV with double the resolution. When it comes to small OLED screens, however, Samsung's Super AMOLED panels for mobile devices has had a head start compared to LG.

LG Electronics' upcoming V30 smartphone will be the firm's first flagship to sport an OLED display.

That said, LG's television is more notable for its technology and the simple fact that it exists; CES is about practical technology and a little bit of showboating, and LG's 88-inch 8K display is in the latter camp for 99 percent of the people that will get to sit down and take a look.
